  • Original carb float tabs broken 1948 8n
  • Hey all need some help, one of the ears for the float snapped off, on the top cover of the original m/s carb. Is there any way to replace the tabs and if so where do I get them.

  • You will need to replace the carburetor or at least the throttle body.

  • Hi guys, long time no posting, only reading your instructive posts.

  • Most I have seen have that little bent metal strap riveted on (I have seen one with screws), but it shouldn't be too difficult to fab & replace

  • Thats exactly what it is, and this one is riveted on. and i didnt know if it was something readily available, or a fab your own type thing. We have replaced it with an aluminum body carb and have put 2 on and they keep failing. So i want to rebuild the original carb to get it back to original.

  • You can buy a new float or you can buy a rebuild kit with all the internals included. Look at some of the tractor parts suppliers even ebay. you can get any level kit you are willing to pay for. They are available.

  • It is not the float that is broken
